How can I easily identify which user last edited a file in Windows?

Is there a way to have programs (mostly MS Office programs) automatically add details into a file name when someone saves a file on their computer. Like for example their initials, so if Tom Sharpe saves a file on his computer that he calls “Test File 1”, it will save it as “Test File 1 TS”.

We are just wanting to be able to identify who worked on the file last easily, without going into file information etc.

    Isn't it apparent that if the file is stored on Tom's computer that he is the one who worked on it? I could understand why you might want to do something like this if it was stored on a network share, but for a local computer? Why?

    You might want to use a solution like Microsoft SharePoint for that.
